Introduction to Shi’i Legal Theory

Share

This module introduces students to Muslim legal theory (uṣūl al-fiqh). Legal theory provides a framework or a method that a jurist (mujtahid) uses to deduce knowledge of Sharia. This module therefore explains the reasons for how and why Sharia is the way it is today. It specifically focuses on the main themes that are discussed in classical legal theory, together with the technical language and terminology used therein.
